Compatibility issue when installing VS6 on windows server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm installing Virtual Studio 6 on windows server 2008 R2 (to run our legacy code). I met compatibility issue: "Virtual studio has a known compatibility issue with this version of windows".

    I tried below steps:

    disabled UAC: 

    1. Right click on "setup.exe", and select "run as administrator"

    2. Run it in compatibility mode, such as windows XP sp2.

    3. # Disable Visual Themes # Disable Desktop Composition  # Disable display scaling on high DPI settings

    it does not work, anyone who can help on this? Thanks!
